Description
A wonderfully dynamic male Hehe figure. The carver has successfully used the shape of the wood to produce a sculpture with extarordinary grace and movement.
The face is small, enclosed in a triangular boundary. The ears are large and almost circular. Both arms are small and turned outwards. The figure ebbs and flows through space.
It is possible that it is one of a pair, see the "Shangaa" book below.
Mounted on a metal base.

A similar figure was exhibited at the Geo-Graphics exhibition of 2010 organized by the Tervueren museum at Bozar in Brussels.

Lit.: Shangaa: Art of Tanzania - Dr. Gary Van Wyk - page 244
